Happy Marriage Monday friends! Today's post is one that I did on my personal blog a few months ago. Something imporant God had been dealing with me about. Praying for my spouse to change.
Now, how many times have you prayed that God would help you be a better spouse? The kind of spouse He called you to be. Here, I would guess not so much. We all think we are good how we are but our spouse really needs to change. He needs to be more understanding and respectful. He needs to understand you desire more attention. He needs to help keep the house more tidy. He needs to put his shoes up. We can find many things to ask God for about our husband but what about ourselves?
We should daily pray that God would help us to be the kind of wife He has called us to be. The kind of wife that is supportive, caring, gentle, slow to anger, quick to encourage, trustworthy and loving. Yes, of course we need to pray for our husband, but just as important is praying that we would be a good wife to our mate. Pray that God would teach you to be a Godly wife. You may be surprised to find that some of your husband's faults don't seem as bad when we are asking God to change us.
